  • Yeah, what happens when it's too good to throw away?
    You either let it go bad or go away
    (I need to pray)

    Take my time (part two), take my time, I'ma take my time
    Na-na-na-na-na-na-na (look)
    Na-na-na-na-na-na-na (uh)

    I'm single again (single again)
    Told 'em we'll be better off friends (uh)
    Maybe I should just focus on me (on me)
    And slow down, don't rush romance
    I'm single again (single again)
    Told 'em that we better off friends (off friends)
    Blaming you is just so easy (whoa)
    But maybe the problem's me
    I'm single again (single again)
    Guess that's just the way it's gon' be (gon' be)
    Maybe I should spend this time on me (on me)
    Maybe I should spend this cash on me (on me)

    Instead of blaming all my old girls when I leave (what?)
    Instead of calling up these fake hoes that I don't need (what?)
    Old relationships turn to new déjà vus
    Got me feeling like, "I don't fuck with you"
    Oh nah, nah, that's the old me
    You fucking with the new me (yeah)
    Honestly, all the disrespect had damn near ruined me (straight)
    All the trust gone, seems like all you say is "Prove it to me" (straight)
    And you know I suck at lying , don't go do it to me (don't)
    Maybe 'cause my mama never worked it out with my dad (damn)
    Maybe 'cause she had insecurities and she had 'em bad (uh-huh)
    Maybe 'cause single parent love was all I ever had
    Who knows (who knows)

    I'm single again (single again)
    Told her we'll be better off friends (off friends)
    Maybe I should just focus on me (on me)
    And slow down, don't rush romance
    I'm single again (single again)
    Told 'em that we better off friends (off friends)
    Blaming you is just so easy (uh-huh)
    But maybe the problem's me
    I'm single again (single again)
    Guess that's just the way it's gon' be (yeah, yeah)
    Maybe I should spend this time on me (on me)
    Maybe I should spend this cash on me

    Take my time, take my time, I'ma take my time
    Take my time, I'ma take my time, yeah
    Even if I'm late, I'ma take my time

    What have you done for yourself?
    What have you done for your mental health? (Yeah, yeah)
    I even tried the drugs and they didn't help
    Short term fix, that breaks everything else (oh, oh)
    And my bros keep throwing me these random girls in stallions
    I need the best advice, went across the street to Khaled (oh)
    He said the major key is to be strong on your own
    Lose your other half, you're never off balance (oh)
    Lookin' for the love in somebody else
    That I prolly shoulda gave to myself
    Cycles I need to break in myself
    If I'm alone, I'm second to no one else, so (yeah)

    I'm single again (oh)
    Told 'em we'll be better off friends (better off friends)
    Maybe I should just focus on me (on me)
    And slow down, don't rush romance
    I'm single again
    Told 'em that we better off friends (oh, yeah)
    Blaming you is just so easy (oh)
    But maybe the problem's me (ooh)
    I'm single again
    Guess that's just the way it's gon' be (way)
    Maybe I should spend this time on me (way)
    Maybe I should spend this cash on me (ooh)

    Take my time, take my time, I'ma take my time, yeah
    Take my time, I'ma take my time, yeah
    Even if I'm late, I'ma take my time

    Yeah
    Stay on this grind (ohh)
    (Ohh, yeah)
    (Dolla $ign, oh)
